There are people that plot to do wrong and come against people, trying to hurt them and cause them problems; but, they obviously donít believe that what goes around comes back around.
Itís one thing for sure, you donít feel the impact when you throw a ball, but when itís thrown back at you, you feel the power behind it. Thatís how it is when we choose to do evil against people. It comes back at a force that is so much stronger than when it was cast out there.
Cast your bread upon the water, and in many days, it shall return to you; whatever seed you so, that you shall also reap. We never know when and how our evil deeds will be returned unto us; we never know how God takes revenge on the enemy for His people; therefore, itís best that we treat people right at all times. It may seem funny and feel good at the time that you are doing it, but it wonít be funny when there is nobody to save you from your payback.
Believe me, when God comes against you, there is nobody nowhere that can help you; you must suffer and endure the beating.
A friend called me the other day asking me to call another acquaintance to give her some encouraging words because she called him all upset and crying because someone had done and said some things that really just tore her apart. I thought about it, and I said, ďI can only tell her the truth, and she may not like it.Ē The truth of the matter is that in the past, she really hurt another person, and I witnessed the tears, the heartbreak, heartache and spiritual destruction myself; so, I knew of the pain that she caused; and, she was smooth-sailing for a while, but now, she has to feel that pain or worse; she has to cry those tears or more. The only thing I can possibly tell her is to ask God to help her to endure His chastisement.
So, when you have done wrong, and you know you have done wrong, and God brings it back with His chastisement rod or a touch of His revenge (ďvengeance is Mine, saith the LordĒ), the only thing you can do is ask God to help you to endure and make it through because nobody else and nothing else can help you; for, God has control. Therefore, I encourage you to always choose to do what is right regardless of how strong the temptation is because you may get by at that time, but you WILL NOT get away. You will see it again.
Right is best in whatever you do;
For, you never know when wrong will return to you.
If you choose to do evil to someone,
You never know when and how youíll repay what youíve done;
Therefore, right is the best way to go,
And righteousness is the best thing to know.
There is no need to cry out for help
When you know youíve done wrong to someone else;
For, the burden youíre bearing at that time
May be your reward for treating your fellowman unkind.
When it seems that you are in a mess,
And none of your efforts help when youíre really doing your best,
It may be that you are reaping the seed that youíve sown
For treating your fellowman cruelly and wrong.
When no one can seem to help you out,
And it seems that God doesnít hear you regardless of how loudly you shout,
Begging Him to come deliver and save you,
It may be the price youíre paying for the evil youíve chosen to do.
When you pray faithfully and believe from day-to-day,
And it just doesnít seem that help is on the way,
This may be Godís source of revenge to you
For the heartache and sorrow youíve put someone else through.
So, when burdens are so heavy that you canít seem to stand the test,
God may be letting you know that right is always best.
Always remember the story of Saul turned to Paul;
For, although he was faithful in accepting Godís call,
Godís promise of sowing and reaping did not fail
Because every time he looked around, Paul found himself in jail.
So, to avoid finding yourself in an unchangeable unpredictable mess,
Remember that doing right is always best.
